Candlewood Suites Corpus Christi-Spid

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel was alight. Internet doesn't work they admit they know it but won't fix it. Gym equipment all broken. Do give a free membership to golds gym while staying there but 10 minute drive away. Free laundry also. Parking is terrible small spots and not enough for all guests.

GO AND SEE, ITS AMAZING HOW WELL IT ALL FELL INTO PLACE

Very clean room...smelled great...no bugs...great amenities....perhaps the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in...staff very polite. Will definitely be back.

Our room was clean and we had a stove to cook our food with. They kept our room stocked with towels as well. The only issue I had is that the pool was out of order for a day or so during our stay. The staff was very kind and helpful. I was also pleased with the price. I will stay here when I visit Corpus Christi in the future.

Was great experience close to everything but not to close.

It was horrible, they gave a complete stranger my room key as I was in my room with my family some random people opened door. I call customer service they apologize fine; THEN they lock me out by shutting off my key card had to get cleaning people to open door

The Hotel Staff was Tremendous. The Hotel though had a Very Bad smell to it....Very bad in the hallway outside our door and in our room. The weight room and the wash room was great...the pool....not too much to say....Little?

The room was amazingly clean & the bed was so comfortable i could have easily slept in & missed my meetings. The staff was professional & nice. My meeting was downtown and it was very easy to get to from this location. I am a female & was traveling by my self & i felt safe at this hotel which is extremely important to me. Will definitely try to stay here next time I'm in corpus.

The hotel was newer however there was a hair in my sheet....gross! and somehow I accidently book a smoking room but put non-smoking under special requests. The hotel was booked for the night so they couldn't switch my room but if they were not the front desk guy said it would be a 30 or 40 charge. I thought that was crazy.

as soon as i stepped off the elevator it smelled nothing but smoke i walked in the room and there was a wash basket full of dirty towels on the bed there were 3-small trash cans in the room 1 in the bathroom and 2-small ones elsewhere there all had trash in them i had to leave and go buy some air freshner and come back and spray the room and hallway will not be back at candlewood.

non smoking but it still smell like a smoking room. my girlfriend nose hurt from the smell of smoke odor.

The room was comfortable, no breakfast the next morning, burned coffee. The night's sleep was interrupted by over an hours worth of dragracing on the streets nearby The staff said they didn't hear anything, so nothing was done and no police were called. The pool was like a kiddies poll--very small. The snack area was clean and well stocked, and it was interesting to see an honor system being used. It was not a good night's rest with the noise. To get a good night's rest, request a room on the front of the building, not the back.

Took my wife and grandchildren on a weekend vacation before school started. All of us enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The hotel staff were very attentive, including the manager. The rooms were clean, and having teenagers, were happy to have a small kitchenette so we could make sandwiches, etc. Will certainly make a return trip.

Very nice room with full size fridge & microwave. Kitchen furnished with silverware, plates, cups & glasses. I just wish they had an ice machine. The fridge had an icemaker, but made only about 4 cubes overnight.

The staff was very helpful & friendly. The room was clean, with the exception of a pharaoh and infestation. The bed was comfy, although I had some trouble getting the heater going. That was most likely user error, though. The internet connected fine on WiFi. My wife's Ipad and my laptop worked fine on it with decent speed. They had an office with a printer for customer use, which I took advantage of. I would definitely come back. The bad: Low water pressure and pharaoh ants. The good: Friendly staff, clean rooms, nice bed, Flat Screen TV (Never turned it on, but I thought others might like to know), good internet connections, Printer and computer available to borrow, and workout room.

I just came back from a vacation in Corpus and this trip will go down as one of the best of all time. As a child, my family use to take vacations to Corpus all the time. Seeing the sites, eating good food, catching live shows, a total family complete absorption of all which is Corpus. This tip was me going as an adult so it was a little different this time around but it's the same city as I remember as a child. . . . but better. What really made the trip memorable was the hotel. Everything was great and this hotel; it put the frosting on the cake. The staff was great, the maids were friendly and quite, the room was . . . . . . awww. . . . .super clean, flat screen TV, kitchen nets with pots and plates, pillow top mattress, the location was great. . . .at the intersection of the two Freeways (358 & 286. . .remember those) you will need to take to really see the Bay Area. I placed the 'No Service' tag on the door and the maid staff did not disturb. I like that! Have you ever been at a hotel where then totally ignore that tag? . . .I have. . .It's the worst. Not here my friend. Great value for the dollar, computer lab (Ethernet cable needed for in-room internet), a nice workout room, a pool that's in the sun 14hours of the day with no blockage (for you tanners). This is a true recommendation. The only reason I didn't give five stars was because it's not located on the beach and to get to the hotel is kinda tricky, you will have to familiarize yourself with the area and the turns you need to take to effectively get to and fro . I'm leaving out a lot of good details but you've read enough. . .Go! Go! Go! . . .Book It! Book It! Book It!

The grocery store items were a bit high compared to H.E.B., for example. We did like the kitchen to cook our own meals.

This hotel is conveniently located at the intersection of two freeways. Drive north for 10 minutes and you are downtown and the Lexington aircraft carrier and the Texas Aquarium. Drive east for 15 minutes and you are at Padre Island. We stayed there during Spring Break and the prices were inflated because of break. Value wise, it was pricey, but it went with the large influx of students for the week. Normally, the prices are probably much better than what we had to pay. The hotel is extended stay so don't expect daily room cleaning, it only happens once a week. However, anything you need is cheerfully available at the front desk. The hotel is somewhat difficult to get to until you figure out the exits and approaches to the hotel. Be prepared to drive some distance to any restaurants. Outside of a hamburger fast food and a BBQ restaurant, there is nothing near by. This is also a hotel that caters to families. Expect young boys and girls to be running the halls with their dogs hollowing at the top of their lungs having a great time. If you don't mind that, it has a flavor of home. Staff was great, free laundry facilities, WiFi worked well, nice fitness center, and clean and well kept. Pool was small and outside so don't plan on using it if the weather isn't nice. Overall, a nice hotel.

Very fast service, and I had no issues. However we only slept in the Hotel and didnt stay there much. It was a short drive to Downtown Corpus and other attractions around Corpus.

We had a very nice stay at the Candlewood Suites in Corpus Christi. The service was great, and the location was awesome. It is close to the malls and minutes from the bayfront. Also, it was minutes from the Texas State Aquarium and the U.S.S. Lexington. The stay was great with great service and awesome prices on their food and beverages. They had everything there that you may need or you may have forgotten. I would definitely stay there again abd i would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends.
